As the second biggest city in Germany, Hamburg has a unique atmosphere. It is home to largest port in the country and the second busiest in the Europe, and it has a wealth of sights and points of interest for tourists. Car hire in Hamburg is the ideal way to see as much of the city as possible from the port area to neoclassical neighbourhoods. Attractions such as the Miniatur Wunderland and Tierpark Hagenbeck are not to be missed and the Hamburg Museum, which was founded in 1908, offers a look into the city’s past.
Many tourists visit the port of Hamburg each year in order to see the many ships which dock here. Elsewhere the Speicherstadt or the city of warehouses has become a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its importance as a business centre, as much as its architecture. Kunsthalle Hamburg is also worth visiting as it is one of the most important art museums in Germany. Tierpark Hagenbeck is home to more than 1,860 animals including one of the biggest elephant herds in Europe. The zoo has been open from more than 100 years and also contains “plant world”, a beautiful park which is always in season. Heide Park resort is also worth visiting if you are travelling with children, as this fun theme park is home to more than 40 rides. The St. Michaelis church is a popular site for tourists to see, not only for its Baroque architecture but the chance to climb its tower and be treated to a panorama of the city. Rent a car in Hamburg and you will be able to access the city’s many points of interest as well as being able to visit and explore the surrounding region.
